Well it all started a year ago .......... :confused!:
I was told to stop watching the video stream about six months before that! :kid_loved:
But still kept peeking
And after a visit to Berck Sur Mer I was hooked and started doodling little bow tie shapes :wacko:
Then the 1.5 SLE in red and black came along, steep learning curve, lots of unintentional landings and some brisk 82 ft walks later
Think I'm getting the hang of this
Bed time reading is this forum .....
Father Christmass came with my 1.5 bro full vent, start learning again ..... Less walks though
Speed series bought with divers boots as a bargain off eBay more learning
Another full week at Berck, met the Flying Squad, Fusion and the Decs along with some one to one tutoring
From Thomas Pedersen
Out of Big Brians stable I have now got the new mistress in the air .... :w00t:
One of the original Bazzer eyes in Black Grey and White .........
Flew her this weekend ..... WOW :blue-love:
Now have made some 15 inch handles, more precise practice
Progression on to 120 ft lines ( longer set up walks) bigger window to work in

Addiction well under way, :sq-crazy:

Welcome!

Looks like Hook, Line and sinker to me, all that is needed now is someone to reel him in. Ooops, looks like that has allready happened too.

I envy you scoring that Eyes kite. It is about the only One I now NEED. Should have jumped at it quicker, might have been in my bag rather than yours.

Fly it often and spank it regularly is all I ask of you.
